Apple demanded $ 180 million more from Samsung for ‘damages’




Apple demanded another $ 180 million from Samsung in the dispute over patent infringement. This is apparent from documents in court Wednesday have been handed by Apple. The pieces are for five smartphones sold in 2012 after the claim.

The claim follows the recent Samsung pay damages of $ 548 million to Apple in connection with an Apple lawsuit won in 2012. The Korean company would have infringed various software and design patents of Apple. The now demanded compensation involves five phones sold after this ruling.

Which patents on this claim if violated identified by Apple is still unclear writes Reuters. In the case which already goes back to 2011 seems no end to it, except that a court in the US in March 2013 determined that the initial fine of $ 930 million for the property in 2012 was too high because a jury mistakes had been made ​​which Samsung ‘only’ 548 million dollars needed to pay.
